My daughter bought an S50 while on work experience in NZ and now back in the UK it's locked up and the tele lens is stuck out. It seems that this is a bootup problem with the camera. I have read on these forums about other Pentax S series cameras that can be reprogged with firmware downloads. I cannot find associated firmware for this S50. Can anybody help me? Is the S40/45 the same firmware or maybe the S5i? Or is this a totally different problem?
She paid quite a lot for this paper weight (~£200 is a lot to me).Ifshe hadn't I would have binned it. :roll:
thanx for any help and sorry if I've missed something obvious.
